Are you passionate about writing? Are you a budding playwright? Do you love telling stories? Do you have an idea for a new play? The People’s Play Award is from the People’s Theatre in Newcastle and is for playwrights from the north of England who are yet to have a play performed professionally. You have up until the end of September to submit your entry.
One winning script will be chosen for a five-night production by the People’s Theatre in June 2023 in their Studio Theatre, and the writer will receive a cash prize of £1,000.
The deadline is Friday 30 September 2022, 6pm.
Open to anyone with a story to tell
The People’s Theatre says:
“We are looking for a new full-length play on any subject, for a cast of any age or gender. Don’t worry about how old you are or much experience you have – the Award is open to everyone with a story to tell. “
